What are the penalties for CDL DUI?
DUI is a very heavily penalized offense, and unfortunately, commercial
drivers face increased penalties. For instance, to be convicted of a DUI
as a commercial driver, you only need to have a blood-alcohol percentage
over .04%, compared to the regular .08%. That is because commercial drivers
carry more responsibility. They are in charge of delivering cargo or transporting
people, and they have to represent an exemplary image of the company they
work for. Commercial drivers can even be penalized if the offense occurred
in their own personal vehicle.
Commercial drivers charged with DUI will face:
- 1 year license suspension at minimum
- Large fees to reinstate license
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- Job loss
- Possible jail sentencing
